Seems that the bigger your company the more powerful you are.

This will take away business from local suppliers. We will end up with cheap foreign imported goods fitted in our homes, schools and other buildings which should all be constructed by local labour and by using British manufactured goods where possible. It is quite obvious that price is everything and quality means nothing.
